(Barbados Today) The ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has come out swinging against Opposition Leader Mia Mottley, accusing her of having alternative motives for wanting to stage a national march of disgust on March 11.
In making the announcement on Wednesday, Mottley said the primary aim of the protest action was to signal to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart that Barbadians simply could not “bear the weight of the indifference and incompetence” of his Government for another 12 months.
However, while expressing full confidence in Stuart, DLP General Secretary George Pilgrim accused Mottley of creating a platform of hate and division in the country.
“We believe the agenda of the Barbados Labour Party continues to be extremely corrosive,” Pilgrim told reporters during a news conference at party headquarters George Street, St Michael Thursday.
As for the proposed Opposition march, Pilgrim warned that it was not about Stuart’s leadership, but all about Mottley and what she wants for herself.
